Requests for page protection

This page is for requesting that a page, file or template be protected. Please read up on the protection policy. Full protection is used to stop edit warring between multiple users or to prevent vandalism to high-risk templates; semi-protection and pending changes are usually used only to prevent IP and new user vandalism (see the rough guide to semi-protection); and move protection is used to stop pagemove revert wars. Extended confirmed protection is used where semi-protection has proved insufficient (see the rough guide to extended confirmed protection)

After a page has been protected, the protection is listed in the page history and logs with a short description indicating why it was protected, and the article is listed on Special:Protectedpages. Further discussion should take place on the Talk page of the article. In the case of full protection due to edit warring, admins do not revert to specific versions of the page, except to get rid of obvious vandalism.

Note: Editors should not consider requesting page protection as a method for continuing an argument from elsewhere nor as a venue for starting a new discussion regarding article content. If a request contains excessive argument, appears to be intended to resolve a content dispute, includes personal attacks or uncivil comments, or has any other unrelated discussion, it will be removed from this page and no action will be taken.

Ministro Pistarini International Airport

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent disruptive editing – Persistent disruptive editing through the additon of sources that do not support the inclusion. Jetstreamer Talk 14:40, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Automated comment: A request for protection/unprotection for one or more pages in this request was recently made, and was denied at some point within the last 8 days.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 14:49, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Rangasthalam (soundtrack)

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Repeated addition of copyrighted image File:Jigelu Rani.jpg by IPs, in violation of fair use. Krimuk2.0 (talk) 14:41, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Marmaduke (2022 film)

Reason: Disruptive edits, primarily violations of WP:FILMCAST and WP:FILMPLOT, from various IPs over the past month. Skywatcher68 (talk) 15:45, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Brian To'o

Extended confirmed protection: Persistent vandalism – Constant low levels of vandalism on BLP article - previous protection expired and it picked right back up. ECP or Pending Changes would be helpful in keeping this at bay. Tony Fox (arf!) 15:45, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Why ECP? Pending-changes is the lowest form of protection (semi-protection is actually higher). It doesn't relate to anything highly controversial or any ongoing wars, conflicts or disputes (which is one of the reasons why many articles relating to the Middle East, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and North Africa are protected). TheGreatAustralian (talk) 22:21, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Steve Wright (serial killer)

Reason: Repeated undiscussed changes by IP/ new editor Martinevans123 (talk) 16:50, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The Looney Tunes Show

Reason: Continued disruption by anon who cannot respect the consensus discussed at WT:TV that the end date should be when the last previously unaired episode first aired internationally, not when the episode, which had been skipped in the US, finally aired there during a rerun of the series. oknazevad (talk) 17:33, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hank Green

Reason: A new trend on TikTok is encouraging people to spread a false rumor that Hank Green stole a lemur from a zoo. (New user vandalism). Askarion💬✒️ 17:50, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I was going to make the same request. I think a period of semi-protection should do the trick. DanielRigal (talk) 20:01, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Criticism of the Quran

Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent vandalism. Victor Trevor (talk) 18:22, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Student Selection and Placement System

Reason: Daily vandalism by a new IP every day. Hey man im josh (talk) 18:26, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Christopher Jessup (musician)

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – obviously SPA/IP vandalism intent on disrupting the AFD process, easier to protect than play whack a mole. PRAXIDICAE🌈 18:39, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Automated comment: One or more pages in this request appear to already be protected. Please confirm.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 20:05, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Not done. Page has been speedy deleted. CSD G5. Malcolmxl5 (talk) 22:15, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thor: Love and Thunder

Semi-protection: Vandalism and unsorced changes from IPs, watch also this--Luke Stark 96 (talk) 21:00, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Xtube

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Persistent IP vandalism (removing valid URL). ZimZalaBim talk 21:02, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I'm now involved, but I'd say this should be declined for two reasons: This wasn't vandalism, and it was a reasonable removal of a dead URL from the infobox of the no-longer-existing article subject. ZimZalaBim, perhaps you could simply withdraw this request by saying so in response to this message. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:11, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
That's fine. Withdrawn. ZimZalaBim talk 22:24, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Withdrawn by requestor ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:36, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Michelle Donelan

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Newly appointed to senior ministerial role so inevitably attracting vandalism, comedy, commentary etc, thanks. DBaK (talk) 22:16, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Minecraft Wiki

Reason: Repeatedly recreated. TheGreatAustralian (talk) 22:18, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Robin DiMaggio

Reason: Mr. DiMaggio or someone working on his behalf is attempting to hire a freelancer to vandalize the page, and get into edit wars to clean his image. The freelancing ad can be seen here: https://www.upwork.com/jobs/Need-Wikipedia-expert-remove-negative-content-add-new-content-and-monitor_~01d8e9430806b88eb8/ Foxtrot620 (talk) 22:24, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent sockpuppetry – See history and [[1]]. Shadow4dark (talk) 22:25, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent sockpuppetry – See history and [[2]]. Shadow4dark (talk) 22:27, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

2nd Corps (Iraq)

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent sockpuppetry – See history and [[3]]. Shadow4dark (talk) 22:28, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Andreas Pereira

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – A lot of unsourced changes that need reverting. JMHamo (talk) 22:28, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Ukraina

Reason: Arbitrary decision regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Indefinite ECP or maybe even full-protection because the page will never really be edited. TheGreatAustralian (talk) 22:40, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

PBS Kids

Reason: Pending changes Block is undergoing a re-branding in mid-month and although we do have indef semi-protection, children's channels rebranding or closing seemingly always are vandalism/hoax targets at that point (see this past example from Qubo, for instance). Nate (chatter) 22:54, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Vandalism after recent release of protection. Dolfi2000 (talk) 00:14, 6 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request unprotection of a page, or reducing the protection level


Yves Nyami

Reason: There is a well sourced article at Yves Nyami (footballer) which should be moved here. Inwind (talk) 09:24, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Wugapodes and Number 57: Looking through the logs, it appears that it was salted due to repeated recreations of a page that was declined by AfC review. I am inclined to unprotect, given that the repeated draftifications and its accompanying protection seem to be against WP:DRAFTOBJECT. Sdrqaz (talk) 01:23, 1 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Sdrqaz: no objection here. Imo, salting just means "don't create without running it past some admin" so always feel free to undo my saltings if you think it no longer is needed. Thanks for the heads up though. Wug·a·po·des 01:48, 1 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I think given the efforts made to get the original article published, I strongly suspect the new article is a paid-for one (looking at the creator's talk page, the issue of COI and paid editing has been raised on multiple occasions). The subject fails the old NFOOTBALL notability guideline and I am not convinced the new article passes GNG (most of the references are databases). Number 57 08:03, 1 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Perhaps Yves Nyami (footballer) should be taken to AfD, and if it survives, then it can be moved to Yves Nyami. —⁠ScottyWong⁠— 21:20, 2 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The Hundred and One Dalmatians

Reason: Unnecessary indefinite protection placed since 2010. Had to be unprotected long ago. Protecting admin is inactive for 8 years. Orientls (talk) 07:14, 3 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • This was a Bambifan101 target and protection was very necessary at the time. But is Bambifan101 still active? --Malcolmxl5 (talk) 10:23, 3 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Talk:Gamergate (harassment campaign)

Please add the following comment to the recent move request.

  • Comment: Some users such as GorillaWarfare claimed that harassment campaign is not the primary topic. However, harassment campaign page has 10x more views compared to ant page. It also has educational value, because it teaches us about the misogynistic deeds other people committed and shows us how to take lessons from it. All these evidence indicate that harassment campaign is the primary topic. Accordingly, I disagree with their opinion. Madame Necker (talk) 23:08, 3 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Bluntly speaking, this argument is like to do far more harm than good to your position. —Jéské Couriano v^_^v a little blue Bori 23:09, 3 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Okay, I will modify my argument. Madame Necker (talk) 23:11, 3 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    To be more specific, the "more pageviews" argument is a good one. It's the "It also has educational value..." sentence that would be the problematic bit, as that sounds like your goal is to use the article for some sort of advocacy. —Jéské Couriano v^_^v a little blue Bori 23:12, 3 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Thanks for the advice. I will change and repost it. Madame Necker (talk) 23:14, 3 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Please add the following comment to the recent move request.

  • Comment: Some users such as GorillaWarfare claimed that harassment campaign is not the primary topic. However, harassment campaign page has 10x more views compared to ant page. Aquillion pointed out that move might cause problems with recentism. However, WP:DPT states that "...historical age is not determinative" when identifying the primary topic. I also think that the general audience would be more interested in the internet campaign compared to the ant species, which would attract the specific audience of biology enthusiasts. Ant species has more educational value compared to the internet campaign, but I think the other factors —particularly overwhelmingly more pageviews and appeal to general audience— outweigh it. Accordingly, I disagree with their opinion.--Madame Necker (talk) 23:29, 3 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Murder of Kanhaiya Lal

See Talk:Murder of Kanhaiya Lal#Protected edit request on 4 July 2022. Clear consensus on article's talk page[4] and also WP:BLPN thread [5] thread against this this misleading revert. Kindly undo this revert. Captain Jack Sparrow (talk) 09:39, 4 July 2022 (UTC) Captain Jack Sparrow (talk) 09:39, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
